Summer is sadly coming to end and I have to admit I find it harder and harder to watch the sun set earlier knowing that the cool weather will be coming in and the shorter days are around the corner. Here in San Francisco our seasons are a little askew, and often our warmest weather is in September and October, but it doesn’t help that the summer fruit that I love so much are slowly fading away at the markets. With that in mind I offer you this summer stone fruit cobbler to keep you company as your nights lengthen, before the fruit completely disappears for another nine months.

I made this cobbler a few weeks ago for one of my dessert parties and out of the 20 desserts I made it was a popular one. One of the key ingredients in the cobbler filling is white wine (you know how much I love my booze in my desserts). The white wine really adds a complexity to the juicy stone fruit, mingling them together, like a gathering of new and old friends from different worlds, all miraculously getting along.

One of the best part of this dish is that you can make it fairly fast, just cut up the fruit, mix it with the filling ingredients and stick in the oven. While it cooks, make the cobbler topping, and then add it 20 minutes in to cooking. Pull it out and you have a comforting dessert, perfect for a large group. The bright red filling contrasts gorgeously with the golden brown cobbler topping, inviting everyone to take a scoop.

I’m sad that summer is over, it seemed to go in a blink, but I look forward the fall, with the apples and pears and then the holidays afterwards. But I’m jumping ahead, something that AJ is often telling me not to do. So, I’ll stay in the moment and just eat a little late summer stone fruit cobbler while I can.

mmm now I’m craving some cobbler too! I’d better hurry before all the peaches and plums are gone! Would love to see all the other desserts on that table :)

Your cobbler looks delicious and I’m happy to see late summer fruit…. there will be plenty of time for apple pie and other fall desserts later! Here in Boston, we’re between seasons too…. it’s cooling off a little and the college students are all back in town.

This is my kind of cobbler! Love all of the fruits involved! Nice work!

I’ve added whisky in a fruit cobbler before (uh, freaking amazing), but I like your more sophisticated take. Yum.

Just made this again because its that time of year! I am in LOVE. My favorite part of this recipe, besides the wine, is how fluffy and light the topping gets. I literally had to walk it over to the neighbors because I could not stop eating it. I left a fork in the pan so I could have a bite every time I walked by. Thank you for the great recipe! :)
